    Congrats! Very stealth, goes well with your 10's Monaco. :thumbsup:
    But what happened to the Gulf inspired bikes you were looking at? ;)

    I know- I'm a dark man at heart and your right the #5 Monaco will go well.
    Bike came with Chrome pipes but I had it blacked out just like the 10' Monaco.

    If I ever get a second bike, I might go down the Gulf Livery track for the days when I'm feeling especially McQueenish and I have the Gulf 50th win on my wrist.:D

    Nah, especially in the case of Heuer nuts, it usually starts with cars ;)

    Who did the build? That interior looks lovely.

    There's a 2010 FIAT500 lurking in the garage too, but that's just transport.

    While everyone has such beautiful and exotic vehicles, it's time for a good laugh. Well... here's my daily driver. I purchased it new in December 1972, as cheap college transportation and it has been very reliable since. Maintenance, such as a tune-up, valve adjustment or timing belt replacement are quick and easy to do. Fortunately, all mechanical parts are still easily obtainable and quite inexpensive.

    Hopefully, I never experience a rear-end collision!

    Fantastic car, looks really good. Has it been your daily since you were at college, or did it take a vacation? How many miles are on it now?

    That's truly insane. In the dictionary definition of the term.

    Have you ever considered bringing it to that anti-Quail Lodge show that focuses on cheap or funky cars during Monterey Car Week? Would probably clean up there!

    Thanks for the positive comments. My Pinto cost $2,300 US dollars new. It's a 1973 model and has a 2000cc engine, 4-speed manual transmission and front disc brakes. Back in the day, Pintos were everywhere in the states. In stock form, the 2 liter engine produced 85 HP from the crankshaft. After I had the engine rebuilt and included a few minor performance enhancements, it produced 88 HP on a chassis dyno, which is about 110 HP from the crankshaft. Still, very sedate (abysmal) power figures, but it keeps up with the traffic just fine.
    .
    Thanks. It was used as my primary work transportation for 35 years. It was on vacation for a few months, while I made some power enhancements and was repainted in the same color. It has accumulated over 300,000 miles.

    Thanks, I never thought about that.

    I’m not sure I ever need another car after 6 months with this. Perfect daily driver, even in horrendous storms like we’ve had recently.
